What Is ARK (ARK)?

ARK is a protocol that allows for the creation of interoperable, standalone blockchains. The platform aims to provide a framework for better access to blockchain technology.

ARK framework creates a communication layer that enables access to the best features of a particular blockchain. The platform makes it possible to carry out multichain operations and create customizable blockchains. This means that developers can build and deploy optimized blockchains on ARK.

Existing blockchains still face three major challenges, which are scalability, security and decentralization. ARK aims to deliver a technology that will allow developers to build other blockchains, which is planned to help solve the problem of scalability.

Who Are the Founders of ARK?

ARK was founded in October 2016 by a decentralized team of 27 members (with 23 core members) from around the world. The testnet was released in December 2016, while the mainnet launched in 2017.

The corev2, launched in 2018, is the reformed version of the initial mainnet with several new features. The improvements of the new mainnet include increased speed of transactions, a plugin system and a flexible fee structure. The team continually adds new features to the platform in line with its goal of making blockchain more accessible.

What Makes ARK Unique?

ARK blockchain was built from scratch to solve real-life business problems. The network also allows for the development of independent blockchains on top of it.

ARK mainnet allows bridgechains existing within its ecosystem to easily communicate with one another. Also, it ensures that all the blockchains built on ARK technology have the liberty to choose their governance policy. To provide solutions to the issues of the existing blockchains, the value proposition of the platform includes:

Improved Scalability

The protocol provides a wide range of features for developers to build independent and interoperable chains, called bridgechains, using the ARK source code. The resulting interconnectivity of the multichains and ARK SmartBridge Technology make the project more scalable. High transaction volume can be handled by running the complex transactions on the bridgechains while the main result is sent to the main chain.

Network Security

Blockchains are generally secured by cryptography, decentralized peer-to-peer (P2P) networks and reward programs. The platform offers a better security mode than the proof-of-work (PoW) used on the Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain. ARK mainnet confirms authentic transactions through a consensus system called delegated proof-of-stake (DPoS).

Enhanced Decentralization

ARK public network allows bridgechains to be flexible. Each chain developer has the option of choosing the number of nodes that will secure the protocol. Also, developers can tweak the speed provided by the ARK mainnet to align with the needs of each bridgechain. Developers can customize the features of ARK network to achieve the best results in terms of scalability, security and decentralization. Two major competitors of ARK are Bitshares and Lisk.

How Many ARK (ARK) Coins Are There in Circulation?

The ARK token is the native currency of the ARK network. At launch, the platform created 125 million ARK tokens in the genesis block and raised over $800,000 during its initial coin offering (ICO). As of February 2021, there are 127,346,023 ARK coins in circulation, with no maximum supply data currently available.

How Is the ARK Network Secured?

ARK platform is secured through a consensus mechanism called delegated proof-of-stake. ARK relies on delegates to approve transactions. This removes the likelihood of large token holders voting for their favorite forging node.

The voting power is proportional to the quantity of ARK tokens owned by token holders. To either vote or unvote a delegate, ARK token holders pay a fee. New blocks are created every eight seconds and each delegate will receive two ARK tokens for each block they create. To learn more about how the DPoS works, read here.
